man, i wish i'd have thought of this three months ago.

i'd have had a place to hurl a virtually uncountable number of f-bombs instead of making my co-workers endure them with sad, sympathetic eyes.

"We trained hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning
to form up into teams, we would be reorganized. I was to learn later
in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing;
and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress
while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization."

Bradley, any chance of a change in the near future?
Good luck

Bradley's post in the F-F writing group getting-to-know-one-another was very memorable.  ;D

[JMack remembers that San Francisco is nowhere near LA, so the idea of connecting Bradley with his cousin and her fiance because they're cool people who'd be fun to talk with for a change of pace.... That idea doesn't really work. So JMack just lights an imaginary prayer paper for an over-worked guy fighting the good fight.]

Awee thanks for the thought @Jmack I've got some friends up in the Bay lived up there for 1 yr.

Haha i feel like this turned into less of a venting thread and more of a therapy for Bradley thread.

And I thought 50 something hours was bad. :-( You got me in the feels.

Sounds like a hellaimportant job, but doing the work of three by yourself is some B.S. Sorry bro. You need a some kind of release before you snap.
